Loading Paper in the Cassette

You can load Letter (8.5 × 11 inches [216 × 279 mm]), A4 (8.3 × 11.7 inches [210 × 297 mm]), and Legal (8.5 × 14 inches [216 × 357 mm]) plain paper in the paper cassette.
  1. Close the output tray, if necessary.

  2. Pull out the paper cassette.

  3. Slide the edge guides outward.

    Note: If you are using legal-size paper, squeeze the tab to extend the paper cassette.

  4. Load a stack of paper, printable side down, in the cassette as shown.

  5. Slide the edge guides against the paper, but not too tightly.

    Note: Make sure the paper fits beneath the top edges of the guide, and is not sticking out from the end of the cassette.

    To prevent paper feeding problems, make sure you do not load too much paper in the cassette.
  6. Gently replace the paper cassette.

  7. Extend the output tray and open the paper stopper.

    Note: If you are using legal-size or longer paper, do not open the paper stopper. Do not remove or insert the paper cassette during printing.
